THREE Mid Cheshire woman are in the running to be crowned Cheshire Woman of the Year 2009.
Sixty secretly nominated women from across Cheshire and the Wirral who have shown personal courage, achieved outstanding professional success, or given service to their community have been invited to attend a special lunch tomorrow, Wednesday at Eaton Hall near Chester.
Northwich’s Lynda Allen has been nominated in the Professional Achievement category; Teenage violinist Sophie Rosa, from Cuddington, has been nominated in the Professional Achievement category and Tracy Stephens from Davenham is nominated in the Community Service and Personal Courage category.
The annual event is the perfect opportunity to reward truly worthy women with the recognition they deserve. It also raises money for the NSPCC to help run projects for children, young people and families who need help and support.
Proceeds from this year’s event will go towards the recently launched Child’s Voice Appeal, which aims to raise £50m over three years to help transform ChildLine and the NSPCC Helpline to answer many more children’s cries for help.
Rachel Carter, NSPCC community fundraising manager said: “Well done to the nominees across the region for all their tremendous achievements. This award is a celebration of the wonderful attributes and skills of women across the region, a way of paying tribute to all of them and giving them the recognition they deserve.”
